Save $100 on our 1-Year Access Passes (normally $350). On sale now until January 16th! And get your one-time $20 Membership too! Cash and checks accepted.

Oh, and don't forget to check out BrickWorld! Can't make it? That's okay…just click onto mnclimbingcoop.com now and purchase your Membership and Access Pass via Paypal today. You may have heard that there was going to be an art aspect to our pre-opening pass sale but due to the busy holidays, communication with the building managers was limited at best and as it turns out, renting the space for a one day art show is too cost prohibative. Luckily we are located in the Arts District of NE Minneapolis, so we'll have quite a few more opportunities for art shows coming up. We definitely want to do something durring the NE Art-a-Whirl, so we'll be listening for ideas!

    This convinced me to invest in the Climbing Co-op's vision. The board of directors is clearly working earnestly and in good faith. The event was definitely helped by the fact that they moved to the Diamonds Cafe, which is just a cool venue anyway.

    My support of the co-op is simply more climbing facilities in the Twin Cities - not cost or dissatisfaction with VE.

I just believe that there is room in this town for another place to climb.

    Thanks for posting a question about it, Chad. If anyone has additional questions or comments, feel free to be in touch with me or...

    ... interruption and chaos that can occur at VE (and, Chad, I am speaking of the St Paul VE, not Duluth). So, the co-op is just a chance for climbers to have an alternate gym to climb and train in.
    Another thing the co-op will offer is 24/7 access, which might not entice most people, but will certainly benefit some. It is also going to be more centrally located than the St Paul VE is.

    The idea behind the co-op is to be an alternative to VE. Some of the founding members of this project have issue with the amount of birthday parties, specialty groups, etc. that inhabit VE. Currently, there is very little option for climbers other than VE. Perhaps REI's tower, some YMCA's, the gym at the U, some LifeTime Fitnesses and places of that nature, but no true gym.
    The mission behind the co-op is to create a gym for climbers wanting to truly train for their sport without the...
